What advice would you give someone starting this project? When working the round and having to do say 5 single crochet in the same stitch/loop followed by a single crochet in the next one, I found it easier to put a Clover Stitch Marker after each set, that way I could count really fast and could easily find any mistakes. Also when doing the long stretch of SC I also put a Stitch Marker at the end of each row until I learned how to count the rows properly because when working in the round, depending on where you are, your counting will be 1 up or 1 down and it can drive you a bit crazy till you figure it out.

I really enjoyed this and Stacey is so cute that I could squish her along with my Pink Bird, "but I won't" :-)
